Gainesville Wisdom Teeth Extraction

Ensure the Health of Your Smile in Braselton

Wisdom teeth are the last set of molars individuals develop, generally appearing between the ages of 16 and 25. If the wisdom teeth appear to be healthy and correctly aligned, there is no need for extraction. However, most often, individuals will experience inadequate wisdom teeth positioning or development and may need to have these teeth extracted to avoid future complications.

Causes of Problems with Wisdom Teeth

It is common for wisdom teeth to develop misaligned, sometimes angled inward or outward. Others may experience an inadequate amount of wisdom teeth. Both of these scenarios may disturb the neighboring teeth, causing them to shift or to become crowded.

Wisdom teeth can also become impacted, meaning they fail to break through the gum line or are enclosed in the soft tissues of the jawbone. An individual may experience a partial eruption of wisdom teeth, which creates an opening, allowing bacteria to collect around the tooth and potentially cause other teeth to decay or gum disease.

Each of these scenarios may warrant wisdom teeth extraction. The extraction procedure is straightforward and helps eliminate the discomfort and teeth issues that wisdom teeth can cause.

The Surgery

The type of surgery required varies for each individual, and the stage of development and tooth alignment are important factors. Early detection of wisdom teeth, including their position and quantity, is possible through dental x-rays. Recognizing issues early can often prevent a more painful or complex extraction process, and it allows our dental team to plan for your surgery before any severe issues occur.

The dental team at BGW Dental Group understands that our patients have busy schedules and do not want to miss work or school, which is why we do our best to schedule your surgery at a time that is most convenient for you. Following surgery, we provide post-operative instructions and care so that you remain comfortable and heal well.
